"My Old Peel Tapes ... Again!"

Good morning friends,

this is just to let you know that I am still alive in one form or another: my hearing loss is still not fully gone and I can't really concentrate on important things. Reason enough for me to spend some time in front of the computer and do silly nonsense ... what I did in fact - in a true Miss Marple style - was trying to search for some tunes that I'm still missing on my old John Peel on BFBS cassettes, taped some 30 years ago and by and large I managed to get hold of the bulk of the specific songs on them on vinyl and/or mp3's within the years. Of course I will never fully achieve this - only a multimillionaire with loads of time could do so, I think - but within the last days I completed at least a few of the old tapes, partly quite illegally I'm afraid.  And, being a generous chap, I thought I'd let you participate and give you but one of them. A random pick this is really, Peel 14 (#14 out of 377 (!) cassette sides, mind you), recorded back in 1985.

So you may call this a mixtape, as simple as that, and why not. But it's a good one, believe me:

Peel 014, C. 017/1:
144 Love Under Will Blood And Roses
145 Death Of The European 3 Johns
146 That's What Dreams Green On Red
147 Good Year For The Roses Dino Lee
148 Risk Krupps
149 The Day After Men They Couldn't Hang
150 Crimplene Seed Lifestyle Yeah Yeah Noh
151 The Devil Goes To Whitley Bay Janitors
152 Life's A Bitch Bomb Party
153 Wo Wo Wo Braille Party
154 Jilted John Jilted John
155 Draining The Pool For You Go Betweens

Download it here as a folder (with separated tracks) or here (as a Sexyloser - Megamix, all in one go).

Good stuff, I'm sure you agree. If you are interested in more of these tapes, just let me know.

And sorry for the crap tracklisting above, I just copied/pasted from the original excel - sheet .. couldn't really be arsed to write all that down properly. Also it's the music that counts, isn't it?

Off to the couch now for another hour before I have to head for an induction session at Little Loser's primary school of choice, not really something I would personally have chosen to spend my forenoon with, but there you are .... also my ears ring again and I feel dizzy. Will this ever end?



PS: if you prefer those tapes with Peel bragging along, go search for them on the Peel Wiki: years ago I sent them over to Steve in South Korea and he has got up to # 65 so far ...

Quality songs from 1985. Dino Lee's Good year I haven't heard for a long long time. I have it somewhere on CD, absolutely not recorded from the John Peel show. I have the Yeah Yeah Noh single packed away too. More of this please.
